Marysa™ PA6UNIBO

Korvik cherry

Due to the strong resemblance to Kordia, the better productivity and the earlier ripening this is an interesting addition to the cherry range.
Origin: Holovousy (Cz)
Parentage: Kordia x Vic
Harvest time: +6 days Bing
Fruit characteristics: The appearance of Korvic strongly resembles Kordia. Fruit are a bit softer than Kordia. Long stalk with sometimes local visible red pigment which can later color black. The fruits are free from each other by the long stems and are easy to pick.
Blooming & pollination: Not self-sufficient.
Flowering time: mid-late
Compatibility Group: S2S6

Productivity high and regular production. Clearly more productive than Kordia. Tendency to excessive fruit yield.
Besides Korvic, trees are also known as Early Korvic. It is unclear whether it is a different breed or the same race under a different name. The addition 'Early' suggests that Early Korvic ripens earlier than Korvic. However, in independent research, this has not yet been established in the near future.
